Brilliant news as The Courtyard Creative Ageing Team are celebrating the launch of their new shiny website.
The Creative Ageing Project at The Courtyard was launched over six years ago and in that time they have worked with thousands of older people across Herefordshire. The project aims to reduce isolation and improve the lives of older people through direct access to the arts by providing activities such as music workshops, dance sessions and dementia friendly film screenings.
Designed by Savage and Gray, the new website creativeageing.co.uk will serve as a place for the team to share all of the creative projects that they have worked on, as many other theatres and art organisations across the country are looking to adopt The Courtyard’s approach to creative ageing.
Ian Archer, Chief Executive and Artistic Director of The Courtyard says:
“As the first dementia friendly arts centre in the UK, we are incredibly proud of our Creative Ageing Team here at The Courtyard. They work on so many exciting projects and it is great to see them all showcased here on our new website.”
Penny Allen, Adult Participation Manager, says:
“Over the last six years we have seen a dramatic increase in the range and amount of projects that Creative Ageing deliver. As a result we have been invited to share our work on a national level and we hope that our new website will inspire other arts venues across the country to embrace Creative Ageing.”
The Creative Ageing Project is funded by The Big Lottery Reaching Communities Fund. For more information about The Courtyard’s Creative Ageing Programme contact the Box Office on 01432 340555 or visit creativeageing.co.uk
